There’s a lot to see and do at San Diego’s famous Balboa Park. Now, for the first time ever, the park is selling a special annual pass that includes admission to everything the landmark has to offer.

The “Balboa Park Explorer” pass is now on sale. For one price, visitors get general admission to the 17 museums and cultural institutions for an entire year.

Those attractions include the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, San Diego Air and Space Museum, San Diego Museum of Man, the San Diego Natural History Museum and the San Diego Hall of Champions Sports Museum, among many others.

The price of the pass ranges from $99 to $199, with different price points within that range for students, senior citizens, adults and families, including up to two adults and four children.

The pass – blue and credit card-sized, featuring a sketch of Balboa Park – went on sale last week. The official launch of the annual ticket is set for spring 2014.

That gives plenty of time for the idea of the pass to catch on before the highly-anticipated 2015 Balboa Park Centennial Celebration.
